Public meeting set for Chester County action plan
Residents' views sought on action plan
WEST CHESTER The county's Department of Community Development is holding a public meeting Monday to ask residents for their views on affordable housing and community development as it decides how to use future funding under a federally mandated action plan.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development required the county to create a Consolidated Plan for 2013 to 2017 to address housing and community development needs. More than 90 percent of entitlement funding from the federal department is used to help low- and moderate-income residents in the county.
Monday's meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Chester County Government Services Center, 601 Westtown Rd., Suite 171 in West Chester. - Michaelle Bond
